Men's basketball finishes their regular season ranked 7th in the nation, while women's volleyball, and men's track and field also rank in the U SPORTS top ten.
TORONTO (U SPORTS) – The reigning U SPORTS women’s volleyball champion Ryerson Rams have established another school first.
Nearly a year after their first national championship in school history, the Rams have claimed the No.1 ranking in the nation as they gear up to defend their title. Ryerson (16-2) defeated the Lakehead Thunderwolves 3-1 in their final road game of the regular season on Sunday and will wrap up their campaign hosting McMaster this coming Sunday.
In other U SPORTS rankings, Alberta (men’s and women’s hockey), Carleton (men’s basketball) Laval (women’s basketball), Brandon (men’s volleyball) and Guelph (men’s and women’s track and field) remain national leaders for another week.
New this season, U SPORTS is implementing the ELO Rating System for the calculation of its weekly national rankings. Powered by RankR, ELO’s unique algorithm blends a statistical calculation with customized variables that is adaptable across a range of sports. For men’s hockey, it will be combined with the results of the media panel balloting (each weighted 50%) to produce the final top 10.
